One of my favorite portraits is a green face. Go to this webpage ( http://www.mariaelkins.com/JournalQuilts2003.asp ) and scroll down to QuiltPage 9.
I love it so far. I can see that there is a photo right below it of the original maybe. How realistic do you want it to be? I make my main pieces in what I call QUILTLETS they are stan alone then I can audition back grounds till the one comes along that feels just right. I was just reading the original...
